Council Prayers

14/02/12 | Posted by Ian Black | Permalink | (0) Comments

The vexed question of whether to begin council meetings with prayer was taken to the High Court last week. The case was brought by an ex member of Bideford Council in Devon because he felt that faith and politics do not mix. Praying has no part in a council's business and so the practice he had twice asked to be ended and twice been out voted on was taken to the High Court, backed by the National Secular Society.

Moral news

The Leveson inquiry into how the press behave (following various scandals) has produced some amazing moments. None more so than the owner of the Daily Express saying that he didn't know what the word ethical means. He said everyone's ethics are different and deciding can be a fine line. With so many competing voices it can be confusing, so here's a bit of a quick guide to ethical behaviour. More ...

New Year checklist

Three-quarters of us will make New Year resolutions. According to an occupational psychologist, Kim Stephenson quoted in the Independent, how we fair depends on three things: they have to matter to us; we need a plan to complete them and there needs to be something positive in it for us to do it - a motivator. How we decide what to include and what to leave out is determined by the values that we aim to live by. The bible gives good pointers and so here's a new year's checklist to pull together a few threads. More ...

An Apple a day

News of Apple's founder Steve Job’s untimely death brings sadness on several levels. It is humanly sad that someone should succumb to cancer at the age of 56. That is too young. His death has also taken away an incredible creative genius, one which has revolutionized the lives of us gadget fans. Phones with touch sensitive screens, more computing power in the palm of my hand than I could have imagined just a few years ago, stylish and compact equipment that gives added pleasure to the task of writing this blog, the computer generated images behind films like Toy Story. His influence on our culture has been enormous. More ...

Good Fish, Bad Fish

New York, 2006 - my friends and I were having the time of our lives walking the streets of "The Big Apple". While attempting to locate a particular comic book store we turned a busy corner, at which point I felt a small leaflet being pressed into my hand. No prizes for guessing the message. More ...

The News of the Ancient World

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The journalists, headline writers and editors are often right in what they say. So you must be careful to live as if it will be your life under the microscope on tomorrow's front page. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. More ...

The Poor You Will Always Have With You?

In the last month, the Church of England's two most senior bishops have both spoken out on the issue of poverty in the UK. Rowan Williams' piece in the New Statesman grabbed all the headlines a few weeks ago, but last week also saw the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, tackling the issue in Friday's Guardian. In it he argued the need for us to stand together and recognise that individuals have value regardless of the size of their income. More ...
